End of Life Care Coordination Centre

The End of Life Care Coordination Centre is the single point of contact for arranging packages of care under NHS Continuing Care for patients who are eligible.

These needs may arise in a planned or urgent way and can occur at any time of the week, day or night, in-hours or out-of-hours.

Our service is staffed Monday - Friday, 9am - 5pm, and is based at Beauchamp Centre, Mount Gould Hospital; at weekends and Bank Holidays a signposting and contingency service is available via Devon Doctors End of Life Team. They will arrange, under the direction of a referring health professional, packages of care with suitable organisations including our in-house Multi-Visit Care Team who provide packages of care to support people to stay at home as their preferred place of care, or will broker out to a domiciliary care agency.

We work closely with the District Nursing Service, the St.Lukes Hospice Crisis Team and our Palliative Clinical Nurse Specialist Services too.
